With about six weeks before the beginning of the 2006 Kenai Peninsula Arctic Winter Games and the arrival of some 1,900 athletes, even Rascal the AWG mascot is being employed to be sure no details are left undone. Details such as the assembly of the 1,000 bunk beds at the various athlete villages, bus drivers, special guest hosts, and a myriad of other opportunities for volunteers to participate in during the Games.

Last week the Kenai Peninsula Arctic Winter Games 2006 Host Society announced that volunteer registration had been extended from January 15th until the January 30th, with applications available online at www.awg2006.org. “We are happy to be able to extend our January 15th deadline so that more people will be able to participate in this once in a lifetime opportunity. We are still looking for volunteers with any number of backgrounds, interest and abilities to volunteer for activities during the Games. I also want to reiterate that whether you volunteer to put a bed together or drive a car, you must register on line,” said Kathy Moore, volunteer manager.

The online volunteer registration system is a secured site. Volunteers are required to provide general personal information; and the registration forms also provide an opportunity for volunteers to select areas of interest, schedules for availability and even allow for comments and questions says Moore.

For additional information contact: Arctic Winter Games office @ 907-262-2006 or Kathy Moore, Volunteer Manager, kmoore@awg2006.org The Arctic Winter Games will be the largest sporting and cultural event ever held on the Kenai Peninsula. More than 1,900 athletes and coaches, hundreds of artists and performers and 5,000 spectators are expected to attend the weeklong Games March 5th -11th.
